Golden Horse Awards 2009 - The Celebration of Three Filmdoms (MonkeyPeaches Exclusive)   
 
 November 30, 2009

   
Not surprising at all, in the Taiwan hosted awards, the grand winner is Taiwanese director Leon Dai, whose low budget drama No Pudeo Vivir Sin Ti, triumphs in three heaviest categories, Best Feature Film, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay (by Leon Dai and Chen Wen-Pin). Hero of the film is a single father, whose life suddenly turned up-side-down when he was told he did not have the custody of his daughter he has been raising since her birth. Legally, he had to give his daughter to a man, who once married to the single father¡¯s ex-girlfriend, the birth mother of his daughter. Being kicked back-in-forth by various government entities, he finally had enough and decided to jump off from an overpass bridge with his daughter. The story is not fictional but is based on a real incident once covered live by at least 6 local TV stations.

Mainland Chinese war comedy Cow grabbed two awards. Comedian actor Huang Bo is named the Best Leading Actor, sharing it with Hong Kong actor Nick Cheung from The Beast Stalker, a made-in-Hong Kong. Cow¡¯s director Guan Hu is awarded for the adaptation script he wrote. Set during the WWII, Cow tells a villager unwillingly assigned to take care of a precious Dutch milk cow on the even of a Japanese attack.

Mainland director Chen Kaige¡¯s biopic of Beijing opera artist Mei Lanfang has failed to match the same achievement he did with Farewell My Concubine. However, performance of the cast still deserves a couple awards. Wang Xueqi, who played an aging Beijing opera player, is named the Best Supporting Actor, and Yu Shaoqun, portrayed the teenage Mei Lanfang wins the Best New Performer award.

Mainland Chinese actress Li Bingbing is voted as the Best Leading Actress for her performance in The Message, a WWII espionage thriller, jointly produced by; and the title of Best Supporting Actress goes to Hong Kong actress Wai Ying-Hung, for her part in At the End of Daybreak, a dark family drama jointly produced by Malaysia, Hong Kong and South Korea.

Taiwan director Tsai Ming-Ling¡¯s ambitious Face, only wins in two technical categories, Best Art Direction and Best Makeup & Costume Design. What do you expect? The musical was shot in The Louvre and the movie within the movie is about the story of Salome.

The Best Visual Effect award goes to mainland fast pace multi-storyline comedy Crazy Racer. The jury was probably impressed by the slow-mo long shot of a gas explosion appeared toward the end of the movie.

Sammo Hung and Leung Siu-Hung won the Best Action Choreography for their contribution to Ip Man. The fight sequences in the made-in-Hong Kong film are a virtual adrenalin rollercoaster.

For music categories, the Best Original Film Score goes to mainland thriller The Equation of Love and Death; and the Best Original Film Song is awarded to another mainland-made family drama For My Heart.

The Best Cinematography award is given to Cao Yu, for his camera work in black and white Nanjing/Nanking Massacre drama City of Life and Death.


Hong Kong made documentary KJ: Music and Life wins in every category, in which it is nominated, The Best Documentary, the Best Film Editing, and the Best Sound Effect. It tells the story of KJ, a talent young pianist with a troubled mind.

Last but not least, the Best Short Film award is granted to Taiwan made Sleeping with Her, tells a Indian girl who is looking after her overly-demanding mother-in-law.

When announced in early October, a movie titled Like a Dream surprised everyone by receiving 9 nominations, more than any other film has received. At the award ceremony held last night in Taipei, the movie once again surprised everyone by not wining one single award.

Zhang Yimou's THIRTEEN GIRLS OF JINLING Now in Pre-Production (MonkeyPeaches Exclusive)

Jin Ling Shi San Chai (literal: Thirteen Girls of Jinling) will be based on woman writer Yan Geling's same title novel. Story of the novel is set in December 1937, when Japanese troops broke into the city of Nanjing/Nanking (nicknamed "Jinling", i.e. "Tomb of Gold"). A church run by several foreign priests provides protection for 6 wounded Chinese soldiers and many school girls, both were hunted by the ruthless Japanese. There are 13 prostitutes, who were also hiding under the same roof, for protecting the life of the school girls and soldiers, volunteered to join Japanese Christmas party as "comfort women". In fact, they are going for a revenge.

Producer told the Chinese press they had been in contact with several Hollywood stars, including Tom Hanks, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, for taking a lead role, possibly a priest. Zhang will cast unknown young actress, rather than A-list stars, to play the 13 girls.

The project will be pointedly produced by Zhang Yimou and Zhang Weiping's Beijing-based New Picture Film Co. and Hong Kong producer Bill Kong's EDKO Films. New Picture and EDKO produced all films by Zhang Yimou since
Hero, released in 2002. Sony Pictures Classics, has released many Zhang's films, will very likely handle the international sales.

MONKEY KING To Be Animated by Weta Digital  (MonkeyPeaches Exclusive)

December 30, 2009

Hong Kong's Filmko Pictures has just announced a US$30 million project called
Da Nao Tiao Gong (Uproar in Heaven), with the English title as Monkey King. It will be based on 16th century Chinese fantasy novel  Journey to the West. The new live-action movie will only tell the story of the Monkey King pillaging the heaven, from chapter 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the 100-chapter book.

The script will be penned by Edmond Wong (Dragon Tiger Gate, Ip Man, Ip Man 2). The cast and crew list is unkonwn.

Peter Jackson's Weta Digital has been contracted to handle the CG effects. Scenes described in the novel, like Monkey King's The Mountain of Flowers and Fruits and Water Curtain Cave, will be shot in real locations. Filmko has sent four scouting teams to different locations in China.

Other scenes, including Heavenly Court of the Jade Emperor and the Mountain of Flame will be shot with built set with CG enhancement. In September, a team from Weta made a trip to China to begin working on the sets for these scenes.

Filmko is also negotiating with a well-known Hollywood studio for possible partnership establishment.


and they won't call it Dragonball this time!! Interesting to see what they do. I had no idea Filmko was Hong Kong. Hope it's better than this:

Andrew Lau’s ‘Chen Zhen’ is master of many talents


Donnie Yen’s latest role will see him portray more than just a martial arts master. He is playing the title role in director Andrew Lau’s THE LEGEND OF CHEN ZHEN, a fictional retelling from of how martial arts Master Huo Yuanjia’s most famous student avenged his master’s death and resisted Japanese occupation in 1920s Shanghai. Chen Zhen has been famously portrayed in the past by Bruce Lee in FIST OF FURY, by Jet Li in FIST OF LEGEND and by Donnie Yen in the FIST OF FURY TV series. This new version is based on a screenplay by producer Gordon Chan.

Lau, who has now begun shooting CHEN ZHEN in Shanghai, told Chinese media on Monday that in addition to being a martial arts master, Chen will also be an agent who plays the piano and speaks several languages. Undoubtedly, Yen will be doing his own piano playing. What some may not know about Donnie is that in addition to being a wushu practitioner, world-class action director and martial arts movie superstar he is also a talented classical pianist. “This will be a brand new Chen Zhen,” said Yen of his role in CHEN ZHEN. Shu Qi will play a Japanese spy. Other cast members include Anthony Wong, Huo Si-yan and Huang Bo. THE LEGEND OF CHEN ZHEN is expected to be released in Chinese territories and possibly, Australia, New Zealand and Europe in 2010.

mmm Barbie Hsu aka 徐熙媛 :fap

Short hair, smoky eyes, daring tattoos, black leather pants - Barbie Hsu went all out for her new romance film Hot Summer Days (全城熱戀熱辣辣)

Dubbed a queen of 'beauty and cosmetics,' Barbie Hsu is notoriously meticulous about her hair, which is always kept long, and the right makeup.

This smoky style was the most daring change she has ever tried.

Barbie Hsu plays a rebellious but kind motorcyclist diagnosed with an illness in 'Hot Summer Days', in which ten superstars share five amazing love stories.

Other stars in the movie include actors Nicolas Tse, Daniel Wu, Vivian Hsu, Rene Liu and Jacky Cheung.

As a joint project by Huayi Brothers, 20th Century Fox and STAR, the film is aiming at a promising Valentine's Day market and is slated for release on February 11, 2010.

POWERS COLLIDE!!

Jeon Ji Hyun to Pair up with Ziyi in 'Snow Flower and the Secret Fan'



South Korean actress Jeon Ji Hyun will co-star with Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi in the upcoming film "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan", a Zhang Ziyi and Wendi Murdoch joint production about a female relationship.

According to Sohu.com reports, the male lead will be played by one of Taiwan boy band F4 (Jerry Yan, Vic Zhou, Ken Chu and Vanessa Wu) but it is not yet announced who will land the role.

"Snow Flower and the Secret Fan" is based on a 2005 novel by Chinese American Lisa See, set in remote southern Hunan in 19th-century China.

It depicts the heart-wrenching love-hate relationships of lifelong intimate friends Lily (Jeon Ji Hyun) and Snow Flower (Zhang Ziyi) who communicated with each other through letters written on fans in Nv Shu, or women's writing, the exclusive secret code by which women communicated a thousand years ago, thereby reaching out of their isolation under the rigid social conventions to share their hopes, dreams, and accomplishments.

The film is directed by Chinese American film director Wayne Wang who also made "Maid in Manhattan".

Shooting begins mid-January in Shanghai.

check out this movie. 矮仔多情 "Short of Love" starring not one, not two, BUT FOUR of the hottest babes in Hong Kong atm.



angelababy, Chrissie Chau, Kate Tsui and Race Wong



Quote
Vertically challenged Hong Kong comedic favorite Wong Cho Lam (Connected, La Lingerie) makes his leading man debut in the romantic laughfest Short of Love. Directed by James Yuen (Heavenly Mission), Short of Love takes a page from the star-studded "chasing girls" romantic comedies of the eighties and nineties, lining up young and beautiful actresses as foils for Wong's goofs and gags. Race Wong (True Women For Sale), Kate Tsui (Eye in the Sky), JJ Jia (La Lingerie), Lynn Xiong (Ip Man), and popular models Angelababy and Chrissie Chau play the objects of affection, with Tsui giving an especially memorable performance during her Moment of Romance parody segment. TVB personalities Louis Yuen and Cutie Mui, comedic duo I Love You Boyz, and singers Ella Koon, Louis Cheung, and Eddie Ng add to the fun in supporting roles.

Playboy Jack Lam (Wong Cho Lam) may be short and shallow, but he's got money and lots of it, which is enough to keep the girls coming. He even manages to dodge the financial tsunami thanks to a fortuitous error. Jack's hot gold-digger girlfriend (Chrissie Chau), however, thinks he's gone bankrupt and dumps him immediately, sending him a nasty wake-up call. Encouraged by the advice (and cute looks) of Angel (Angelababy), Jack decides to go out and look for love again, encountering an emotionally unstable dancer (Race Wong), a naive massage girl (JJ Jia), and a scarred triad girl (Kate Tsui).

Guan Yu is the new Yip Man

TOO EPIC. This is the ultimate legendary War Hero, he's worshipped by triad and cops alike. He is immortalized in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms novels which influenced the anime 一騎当千, Ikkitosen.

Last seen in John Woo's epic Red Cliff with Ba Sen Zha Bu (巴森扎布) in the role.




Donnie Yen and Louis Koo Tin-lok are among the actors portraying Guan Gong.



Quote
Chinese filmmakers are scrambling to produce multiple films about legendary Chinese military general Guan Yu even as IP MAN 2 and THE GRAND MASTER, dueling biopics of Wing Chun grandmaster Yip Man from directors Wilson Yip and Wong Kar-wai are preparing to be to released. And once again Donnie Yen, China’s current leading action icon, is at the center of attention when it comes to casting, at least for one of them.

Felix Chong and Alan Mak are developing the tentatively titled GUAN YUN CHANG, which focuses on one portion of Guan Yu’s life where he was held captive by warlord Cao Cao and went on a journey by horse to face various obstacles and behead several generals along the way.

Guan Yu is an icon and revered historical figure in China, well known for his ruddy complexion, full beard and prowess with the long-handled blade known as a guan dao for which, according to legend, he invented.

Yen has been offered the lead in the production which is scheduled to begin shooting in March. But how he will find time in between other projects and the distractions that come with being one of the most sought after leading men in Asia is anyone’s guess. Although shooting on IP MAN 2 ended last year, he’s also starring in THE LEGEND OF CHEN ZHEN and has countless offers pouring in for more films.

“I don’t know why so many filmmakers want me to play folk heroes or historical figures,” said Yen when speaking to Chinese press. “I have heard that many are shooting Guan Yu films, and Louis Koo would be joining one. Very fascinating… To me, this is a very challenging role. I’d be acting and action directing so the pressure is quite big. My schedule is already fully packed this year but I’m still getting new scripts, more than I could handle.”

In addition to the Guan Yu film, Yen has been offered the lead in a remake of the comic-to-film fantasy actioner A MAN CALLED HERO and the role of the Monkey King in a new adaptation of the literary classic “Journey to the West.” He’s also being considered for lead roles in Peter Chan’s JUNGKU: THE MAN FROM 18TH HELL and LEGEND OF SAINTLY PHYSICIAN LI, a film on the life of Ming Dynasty-era doctor Li Shi-zhen.

Benny Chan is planning to direct a Guan Yu film called LEGEND OF MILITARY GOD with Louis Koo in talks to star. What’s funny about this is that Koo is well known for his addiction to tanning salons and even admits himself that he already looks the part.

“I’m in talks about this project right now. The script is a big draw,” Koo said. “I’m to play Guan Yu. Very challenging. My face is pretty tan, don’t need make-up. If there are many filmmakers wishing to make a film on Guan Yu, it means this subject is very popular. I don’t fear comparisons.”

Two other Guan Yu films that have been announced in the last year and are planned for production by the end of 2010 include Yang Zi’s MILITARY SAINT YUN CHANG and GUAN GONG which is written by Liu Heng.

the greatest movie ...EVER?!?!

'Future X-Cops' Come Live
    2010-03-05 11:04:07     CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Xie Tingting 

Hong Kong director Wong Jing's upcoming sci-fi action film "Future X-Cops" has released a trailer, offering an early taste of high-tech futurism.



In the film, Andy Lau plays a superhero in the year 2080. He travels back in time to 2020 to protect a child who is pursued by assassins hired by oil companies as the child would in 2080 find how to replace oil with solar energy.

Lau's character works under the disguise as a policeman and fights the villains with Transformer-like outfits.

Ignoring those who have slammed the film as just another Hollywood mimic, director Wong Jing told reporters at a promotion on Thursday that the film's focus is its story, not its special effects.

"Future X-Cops" also stars Barbie Hsu, Fan Bingbing and Xu Jiao. Cinema release is set for March 30.

Dante Lam directs FIRE OF CONSCIENCE 《火龍》 a hard-boiled story of an Internal Affairs cop (Richie Ren) who teams with a rogue narc (Leon Lai) to investigate the murder of a prostitute.



I comfess. I am digging this movie, impressed? Most of the time I will avoid a Leon Lai movie / song like the plague cuz he's a big time dork, the weakest link to the "Four Heavenly Kings" (him, Andy Lau, Aaron Kwok, and Jacky Cheung). I only watched one of his movies cuz it had Michele Reis masturbating to his garbage bags (he played a hitman in Wong Kar Wai's "Fallen Angels") but damn, maybe cuz it's his beard...but this looks like a gritty over the top good cop, "Break all the Rules!!" cop movie:



here's the theme song:


It opens April 1, 2010 in Hong Kong and the rest of Asia.

Acting newcomer Jing Tian (above) will play the female lead in the Chinese historical epic "Warring States", the film's producers announced when filming began on Sunday.

The 20-year-old actress secured the role for which the media was expecting an A-lister such as Zhang Ziyi or Liu Yifei.

Director Jin Chen told the "Straits News" that "casting a new face could avoid aesthetic fatigue."



Jing Tian's acting credits include the lead role in a stage rendition of Ang Lee's "Lust, Caution".

"Warring States", with its story set in ancient China's Warring States Period (475-221 BC), revolves around the confrontation of military strategists Sun Bin (played by Sun Honglei) and Pang Juan (Francis Ng).



Jing Tian plays Sun Bin's love interest. South Korean superstar Kim Hee-Sun (below) plays Pang Juan's younger sister.



The movie also features Chinese actor Jiang Wu and Japanese star Kiichi Nakai.

Pffffffffffffffft. Prequel :lol:

Li Xiang to Invest in "The Founding of a Republic" Prequel

Famous TV host Li Xiang will invest in Han Sanping's upcoming new project, a prequel to the 2009 blockbuster film "The Founding of a Republic," Hunan-based rednet.cn reports.

Li, who is the head of Mango Films, accompanied Han and director Huang Jianxin to Changsha, capital city of Hunan Province, on Monday to scout for filming locations.

The famous TV anchorwoman has dabbled in films in recent years. Together with her director husband, Wang Yuelun, they have produced comedies such as "Shi Quan Jiu Mei" and "Panda Express." Mango Films, a joint venture between Li and Hunan Television, will be a major investor in the prequel.

Han, who is also chief executive of China Film Group, announced his ambition last September to mint a new giant project that chronicles the founding of the Communist Party of China (CPC) following the overwhelming popularity of "The Founding of a Republic," an all-star studded tribute to the 60th anniversary of the founding of New China.

Han wants to complete and release the new film in 2011, the 90th anniversary of the founding of the CPC. He intends to cast more actors in the new film than the number that appeared in "The Founding of a Republic." He also said several rising young stars will be cast.
